Jewelry Tree by Me

The current theme of my life is about re-invention and streamlining, which also means streamlining all of the bits in my life. I never wear any of my fashion or statement jewelry but whenever I am out I wish I would have remembered to put some on. The reason is that while I only have a few pieces, those pieces I own are put away in a very untidy and chaotic manner. I don't even know what I own. As I was clearing out my clothes for donating, I decided enough is enough and set out to tackle the beast. Seen below.

I ran into the garage and found the following items not being used. The lamp doesn't work and the four candle holders I stopped using because I don't like using candles in the house when there are babies around.

I just used string, a needle, buttons, scissors and started decorating the lamp. I wanted to get tons of little areas to stick things on or loop things around. I was not sure where I was going with it and I was prepared to toss it if I failed. But I am very pleased with the result. The best part, it cost me nothing.
